Epsagon the serverless monitoring startup expanding to cover other microservices
Epsagon is an Israeli startup which was launched last fall as a company that is into serverless architecture and has got a lot of limelight because of that. Epsagon is open-minded and did not want to narrow down its services. It wanted to grow its business by working with other services. Today, the company announced that they will be getting into a broader micro service development so that they can open up new avenues.
The co-founder and Chief executing officer of Epsagon Nitzan Shapira said that when they started this company, the main aim they had was the server less and Lambda was the perfect tool to use.
He also said:
“Our product was basically a tracing troubleshooting and monitoring tool that was automatically doing all of that for the Lambda ecosystem. And since then, we’ve seen actually a bigger shift beyond just Lambda.”
The shift that the company made was big in nature. When all the developers were moving towards a more modern approach, it became harder to launch agent so that it will monitor what exactly is happening. The developers will still need visibility in their applications.
According to the Chief executing officer Nitzan Shapira:
“Today, with engineering and DevOps working closer than ever, being able to automatically trace micro-services applications without using an agent and combine the tracing and the logging in one platform are extremely valuable.”
He has also made it clear that over time the company will be expanding its services and support number of different tools. He said:
“We need to provide support for more and more frameworks becoming popular. Lambda is just one framework.”
Servers are not absolutely absent in this case. The servers are present, but rather than programming to launch on any particular servers, virtual machine or the set of virtual machines, the vendor of the cloud infrastructure gives the developers the infrastructure resources he requires at any moment that too automatically.
Microservices have become very popular recently and instead of building a monolithic application. The main team of the company is still in Israel. This company now has 20 employees in total. The chief executive officer did not clearly say the number of employees that are under the company.
